Paris Airport Coach Service: Air France Shuttle

By | February 8, 2015 | in Airport Charles de Gaulle (CDG)

Update: Les Cars Air France is now known as “Le Bus Direct”.

Instead of taking the RER or train heading into Paris, there is an airport shuttle from Charles de Gaulle or Orly Airport to the heart of Paris. Air France offers a shuttle service for non-passengers (and passengers alike) with central destinations such as Gare Montparnasse, Gare de Lyon, Invalides metro station and Charles de Gaulle Etoile metro station. Considering that this option is substantially cheaper than hiring a taxi, it’s a great deal for a lot less stress.
